Some of the tree services they offer include:

Tree Pruning

Tree pruning is where branches are cut back to improve the tree’s shape or to remove dead or diseased wood. This can be done for aesthetic reasons or to increase the amount of sunlight and air that can reach the ground beneath the tree. In this way, we can preserve the tree’s health and stop the spread of disease.

Tree Removal

Sometimes a tree needs to be removed completely, which could be for safety reasons if it is dangerously close to a building or power line. It could also be due to disease, which has spread too far and cannot be controlled. In these cases, tree surgeons will fall the tree and remove it from the site. There are some instances wherein tree removal is done to prepare an area for development purposes.

Tree Lopping

Tree lopping is where the tree’s crown is reduced in size by cutting back its branches. This is often done to provide clearance for buildings, power lines or other structures. It can also be done to reduce the amount of wind resistance the tree experiences, making it less likely to blow over in high winds.

However, Tree lopping is an unacceptable practice for multiple reasons. 

  • First, it can cause significant harm to the tree, putting it at risk of catching diseases and being attacked by insects.
  • Second, when the tree has been lopped, it becomes more prone to breaking and can be a danger to the nearby property.
  • Lastly, it is usually not essential and can be substituted with more eco-friendly practices such as reduction pruning.

Tree Planting

Tree planting is the process of planting a tree or trees in an area where there are none. There are many reasons to plant trees, such as to provide shade, create a wind break or improve an area’s aesthetics. Trees can also be planted to provide habitat for wildlife or to replace trees that have been removed. In this way, fresh air will circulate. In addition, it will restore the trees that have been destroyed or cut down.

Stump Grinding

Once a tree has been removed, the stump is often left behind. This can be unsightly and can also make it difficult to mow the lawn or use garden tools in that area. However, tree surgeons can grind down stumps using specialised equipment, leaving your yard looking neat and tidy.
